^The way it's going sure looks like it will be... almost three months and only about another 150ft or so to go? I'd think absolutely it will be topped out by then if not damn close.

Yeah, but only the core is at that height... I would say 13 floors left to go if you don't count the core. And the first of the last two mechanical floors isn't even finished yet...

Is there the chance that this tower will be more than 426 meters ?

Only if the construction workers have made a major screw up.

Wow it looks huge in that last pic. Almost like the renderings. Just to think that one year ago it wouldn't even be visible from that location.

Maybe missing 2 actually, but you get the idea.
I still think they need to do something with the top. It ends too abruptly.

I made an edit out of your photoshop and made it into 2 towers. I hope you don't mind. (It was poorly done.)

The new King of Midtown!

Has it surpassed the ESB or not yet?

With the alternating colour I keep thinking it's the world's largest Rubik's cube!

I don't think it's going to alternate colors in the actual building.

Wow, that's right below the 102nd Floor Observatory. Right around the height of the original T antennae you see in that photo. Those antennae are now home to thousands of bees.

It's just god awful what they have done to the ESB by mounting those antenna and communication dishes on it. I really hope the Communications Ring on One World will take those off the ESB

Yeah, I cringe every time I see a close up of it. It's like they hired a bunch of blind guys to install them by feel

It already passed the 102nd & 103rd floors of the ESB already. 102nd floor is about 369 m and the 103rd floor is about 373 m.
